Interests: space hydrology (radar altimetry); spatial distribution of soils using knowledge-based models and remote sensing (visible, IR, and SAR); characterization of land use (texture analysis, object-oriented approaches, expert classifications, modeling)
The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018 highlights several enduring issues as the strong probability of future water scarcity and flooding, and the implementation of integrated water management, in particular for transboundary basins. Significant advances have been made in the area of radar altimetry data processing and use in forcing or assimilation of/in hydrological and hydrodynamic models. The key challenge today remains how to mix different data sources, at various temporal and spatial scales, in order to address the main issues with water resources management. Advances expected from the synergetic use of various sensors for water cycle components observation, measurement, and modeling will be especially important for the least developed countries that are particularly exposed to the effects of global change. Research works within this general scope will be welcomed for the Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
